The Indianapolis Symphonic Choir and Indianapolis Public Schools have united to resurrect the All-City Honor Choir. Eliminated from the IPS offerings in 2009 due to deep financial reductions, the All-City Honor Choir returned in 2015 to the music education offerings in the Hoosier State’s largest public school system, re-imagined, refreshed and reaching gifted young musicians. The Indianapolis Symphonic Choir is pleased to partner with IPS, bringing to life a choir that includes students from all 8 IPS schools who were selected through a competitive audition process. The Indianapolis Symphonic Choir looks to grow and expand this program through the 2016-2017 season.

TViewfindershe Viewfinders program offers teacher training in Visual Thinking Strategies (VTS), which is a facilitated arts-based discussion method that develops students’ vocabulary, reasoning, and critical thinking skills. Additionally, the program connects teachers with a year of VTS curriculum for use in the classroom, offers IMA staff for school site visits, and engages classes in VTS-specific field trips, which serve as a capstone to the VTS experiences throughout the year. A new component of the program that the IMA is piloting this year is to offer assessment and documentation of VTS in teachers’ classrooms. Current IPS school partners may participate.
